Carphone Warehouse: we're not copyright police

Whether you call it the '3 strikes' approach, 'graduated response', 'Intenet ASBOs', 'Net lock-outs', or 'ISP copyright policing', Carphone Warehouse boss, Charles Dunstone, says it is not his company's job, according to the BBC.

"The head of one of Britain's biggest internet providers has criticised the music industry for demanding that he act against pirates.

The trade body for UK music, the BPI, asked internet service providers to disconnect people who ignore requests to stop sharing music.

But Charles Dunstone of Carphone Warehouse, which runs the TalkTalk broadband service, is refusing.

He said it is not his job to be an internet policeman."
